Unipol and Homestay at the University of Leeds


Are you looking for a short term letting option? If you are studying in the Language Centre (or another University of Leeds school) then you could apply for Homestay accommodation and live with a local family in Leeds. 

Over the last three years, Unipol has been working closely with the Language Centre to support new international students in finding accommodation. All Homestay hosts are carefully selected and subscribe to an accreditation criteria called the Homestay Code. This ensures that high standards are met and maintained within all Homestay hosts. 

Homestay hosts offer a single bedroom, usually within 40 minutes of campus. You'll get breakfast and evening meals on weekdays, and breakfast, lunch and evening meals at weekends. Some hosts are flexible about meal provision so as to work around your university timetable as much as possible. Students are carefully matched with a host, based on their host family profile.

As well as improving your English, you'll learn lots about traditional English culture; it's a home from home! Throughout your stay you'll also receive additional support from the Homestay Coordinator. 

For further information, contact Jodie Driver, Homestay Coordinator, on J.Driver@unipol.org.uk, or call +44 (0)113 205 3447.
